Alex Tourk probably worked his ass off as campaign manager for his boss, San Francisco Mayor and left-wing fave Gavin Newsom.  And how was he repaid?

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Mayor Gavin Newsom apologized Thursday for having a sexual relationship with his former campaign manager's wife.

"I'm deeply sorry," Newsom said during a brief news conference at City Hall the day after the aide resigned. Newsom appeared poised but visibly emotional. He spoke for about a minute and left without taking questions.

The sad part is that San Francisco will almost surely "forgive" the Mayor, and promptly forget all about the his former campaign manager, who has now quit his job, lost his wife, and been left with--perhaps--nothing.  You know, because people in San Fran are "not ones to judge."  In fact, I'd say chances are pretty good folks in San Fran will decide that the Mayor is the victim here.

Nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

The guy better never run for President. I let Bill Clinton slide (even though I did not vote for him in the first primary becaue of the Flowers debacle), but this Newsome guy can forget a vote from me. You see, its just NOT okay with me to screw your best friend. Which Newsome did when he had sex with his friend's wife. Messing with a friends family is where I draw the line. So, San Fran, love your mayor. I'd vote Republican (aacckkk) before I'd vote for Newsome!

Oh, Jesus ... the only dude who has the right to be angry and offended here is the campaign manager.

Do you think Republican officials have never done this before? You're naive if you do. Also, the location of the affair had nothing to do with it. I am sure plenty of extra-marital affairs happen in conservative cities, too.

Get off your high horse.
